A COUCH POTATO
Forty - three-year -old Brian Blakey from Birmingham is sitting on his sofa and telling me about his perfect day.
When I wake up I don’t get up immediately. I turn on the television and watch the children’s programmes and old movies until about half past ten.
Then I get up, go downstairs and switch the news. In the afternoon, I often watch another old film – they’re showing some good ones at the moment. In the evenings, I often watch soap operas or sport and the news again. I like the main news at six o’clock. At nine thirty, if there’s a good play on BBC2, I switch over and watch it. Then at night I watch more films and I usually switch off the telly at about two o’clock. I never watch TV all night.
I watch TV for sixteen or seventeen hours a day. I also do some exercises every day. I take Tina, the dog, for a walk every afternoon. I don’t go far, of course. I walk to the wall outside my house. I always take my portable telly and sit on the wall while the dog walks round the circle.
Of course, I couldn’t live this lifestyle without a good wife. She’s not at home now because she’s working, but she always makes my meals. We haven’t got much money, you know, but we’re happy. Sit down, watch the telly – you’ve got the world at your feet. And in your hand. Great!
